Which race? See below..
After a two year break Exmouth Triathlon is back for 2024. This event is ideal for triathletes of all abilities from absolute beginner to elite. There is a pool based swim at the LED leisure centre followed by a bike which goes out along the sea front and then up on country roads to the edge of Woodbury Common. Swim start order will be seeded with the fastest swimmers going first. The final, very scenic run is out and back along the Exe Estuary path and is pan flat. New for 2024 are Aquabike & Aquathlon options. The Aquathlons are open to children aged 9 & above.

How do age categories work and what is the minimum age to compete?
For events on open roads the minimum age is 15 or 17 for the longer Standard/Olympic distance events. However for our Pool-based triathlons the minimum age is 8 by 31st Dec in the year of competition or 5 for the Torbay Triathlons. And at our Donut Duathlon we have a mini duathlon with a bike or scoot followed by a run for children aged 3-7.
Just to confuse matters England Athletics (under whose rules we run most of our running events) use age on the day of the race instead of age at the end of the year.
Here is a summary of all the age groups (all ages are on 31st Dec of year of competition). Distances increase as children progress through TriStar. On our registration form just choose Tristar or Novice & you'll be automatically allocated to the correct category. The Novice events are aimed at children who are less confident swimmers or trying triathlon for the first time.
Mini Duathlon ages 3-7 (only at our Donut Duathlon)
Mini Tri age 5, 6 & 7 (only at our Tavistock & Torbay Triathlons)
